Lockheed Martin today launched fifth Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), Milwaukee at the Marinette Marine Corporation shipyard.
"It is a true privilege to serve as the sponsor for this ship as she begins her journey of service and commitment to our powerful Fleet," said Mrs. Panetta. "I am proud to support the ship's crew members over the course of her service to ensure she leads with strength and protects our freedom. My congratulations to the city of Milwaukee as this ship assumes its name."
Following christening and launch, Milwaukee will continue to undergo outfitting and testing before delivery to the US Navy in 2015.
"We are honored to continue building these critical warships for the U.S. Navy," said Dale P. Bennett, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin's Mission Systems and Training business. "As the service prepares to retire three ship classes in this strenuous budget environment, the Lockheed Martin-team's LCS is helping to fill those gaps affordably with one flexible, technologically advanced ship suited for multiple missions."
The U.S. Navy awarded the contract to construct Milwaukee in December 2010. The ship is one of four LCS currently under construction at Marinette Marine.
"Marinette Marine is proud to provide another finely crafted warship to our nation's warfighters, especially one that bears the name of the largest city in our home state," said Chuck Goddard, president and CEO of Marinette Marine Corporation.
Cubic Defense Systems has won a contract valued up to $112 million to develop hands-on training devices, desktop trainers and simulators for each variant of the Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) Mission Bays. Under the contract, Cubic will provide training solutions for the preparation, launch, handling, recovery, and securing of the ships mission equipment
The Navy issued contract modifications to Lockheed Martin Corporation and Austal USA under their respective Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) block buy contracts to add funding for construction of two fiscal year 2012 littoral combat ships each, March 16. This is the third funding increment for each contractor under their previously awarded, fixed-price incentive "block buy" contracts for the design and construction of up to 10 LCS Flight 0+ ships
